Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Glad to clear that up.
They can't marry for love, legally.

This digital age allows you to sit and click and retrieve information that is beyond belief even a few decades ago.
But you have to read it. You have to understand it, and you have to have the right perspective. Which means toss out that indoctrination you have been getting from a few sources.
Wiki is a great place to get an overview. You can go for days clicking on related links from one subject. Sit down for a while one night and start investigating religion with fresh eyes. Get an overview and think for yourself.
So many on here are pushed by the herd, and those aren't the few theists or deists on here.
Sadly, for you the "right perspective" is to buy anything that has no supporting evidence and deny anything that has even a small amount of verifiable evidence.

Wouldn't you say they there are some gays out there that are only pretending? Now that the gays are out, it's starting to feel like being gay has become more of a trend than an orientation.

Thoughts?
Just when I thought you couldn't be more stupid...

[QUOTE]Slavery can be in different forms. Conscription of tradesmen for public works, which at the time the Pharaoh was the public, would be considered slavery by those tradesmen. They had to leave home and probably didn't get the highest wages they could have."

The problem with white-washing slavery in this case is that the slavery in this case would have to be bad enough to morally justify the atrocities that were purportedly committed by Yahweh against the Egyptians. Atrocities that conspicuously lack any
corroborating evidence.

[QUOTE]There are lots of things that happened and got buried and you will never find."

Even if you go specifically to look, based on information provided by the Bible? Because many people have.

[QUOTE]
Surviving records are scarce from most any age, including just a few hundred years ago."

And yet there are no records at all of the various plagues, nor any mention by other cultures of these millions of homeless Hebrews wandering through their lands. You'd think that would rate some kind of mention.
I caught about 20 minutes of The Bible on the history channel last night.

Just in time for the crossing of the Red Sea.

"Holy crap" is an appropriate term.

They must have had at least a $1000 budget.

<quoted text>Homosexuality is different in Japan - but now the Western sexual identities are moving here powerfully. Whereas before many MSM (men who have sex with men) told me "I'm not a homosexual, I just want to have sex with men" a lot of them are embracing it. I think they're tired of living hidden lives - but I'm no longer doing that kind of research, so I don't really keep tabs on the people anymore. Some must still claim not to be homosexuals (and the identity markers that they perceive going along with that).

Met my first lesbian couple here a few months back! One was obviously gay, the other apparently straight, going by stereotypes. Well, they broke up and the straightish one is straight, with a bf. She wants to marry a man, have kids. The other one doesn't.

People are so strange and interesting :)
There's a woman I used to work with who has gone from straight to gay and back to straight.

She is, in general, a very strange person and somewhat socially awkward. She's had drug problems and financial troubles and tends to be a compulsive liar.

She tends to dress very masculine and her mannerisms are kind of ambiguous-definitely no feminine, but not really masculine either.

I don't think she honestly knows WHAT she is.

You hit the mail on the head, Clementia.
And some pretend to be straight because they know their parents would disown them if they knew they were gay.

We are effectively a straight, married couple that will never procreate.

And we're lovin it

All you stated was that you have to buy the snake oil without evidence in order for you to believe it will work, that still doesn't mean the snake oil will work. As for the "proof" you offer, that has all been addressed and debunked a million times over, catch up.
Debunked a million times you say, give me one debunked and I'll prove it's simply as always, lack of knowledge because of laziness in studying the bible.

OK clever clog, know-it-all sheepy boy, what's your theory?
My 'theory'? My hypothesis is, there is only one or two trolls on here playing the part of several people. All they have to do to get attention is, deny science and hide in it's gaps. I don't think that these trolls are interested in learning science or about christianity, they are just interested in the fight.

Can you imagine the christ talking about a donkey punch or sloppy seconds? Only a troll would say such things.
